The installation of a Garaventa GSL Artira inclined platform lift at Grand Ridge Grade School in Grand Ridge, Illinois has been named the Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for July, 2015.
The lift was installed to solve a common accessibility problem in older schools – that of a gymnasium located at the bottom of a short flight of stairs. Typically, these areas are not serviced by elevators. To make matters more challenging, often there are very tight clearances at the upper and lower landings, such as was the case at Grand Ridge Grade School. The answer was an Artira designed with a drop-down lower landing configuration.
